What is the best revision guide for AS Philosophy and Ethics OCR? I've been looking round and found this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/AS-Level-Rel...1Y9YS0EERYF2NP

Any others you recommend?

I'm doing the same as you

The one you have is fine, its quite detailed. This one is good, but not as detailed as one would like, however if you just need to read something quickly to understand it then its fab! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philosophy-E...ision+guide+as

This is also a really good book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philosophy-B...hilosophy+book

Its obviously not about the course but it has loads of information in it

There's not really a winning answer here. You're better off making notes from the larger textbooks, then turning them into revision materials.

I recommend these:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0415468256
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1850085250

There are Philosophy equivalents to those books, and if your library doesn't have them, you can get them from eBay for about £4. Looking at the authentic texts written by the philosophers is another way around it, but it can quite wordy. Philosophical Investigations and RSRevision are quite good websites for topic specific materials too.

The Oxford guide you mentioned is pretty good if you're looking for a B/C grade, since it gives you the basic details.

If you need any help on the course, I'm happy to answer any questions. (I'm doing A2 now, got 79/100 in Ethics and 100/100 in Philosophy for my AS)
